So I was just reading an interview with Aleksi Perälä (from the gearslutz-section mentioned earlier in a different topic) and he mentions something called Colundi alot. I like his music so I kept reading. There's not much information about this set of frequencies and the crowd is, as far as I understand, pretty small. I have not read into this carefully at all..

It doesn't really help that it seems that most followers of Colundi pride themselves in shrouding everything in very vague explanations borderline "new age" hehe, though that might be just be my frustration talking. I like very plain, simple explanations and the whole notion that frequencies reveal themselves to the practitioner puts me off. Frequencies, air, sound etc. is after all firmly based in science, but the effects they have on the listeners mind can of course be/seem very mysterious.

Nevertheless new approaches or philosophies regarding music creation has always been fascinating to me so just wanted to see if any of you guys read up on this. It's not claimed to be a tuning (in the traditional sense), instead it's some kind of mathematical sequence of frequencies claimed to stem back from ancient cultures (standing waves in certain sacred rooms in pyramids etc). But if it's mathematical it should be very easy to just map these frequencies over the whole audible spectrum, but again it is instead said to be revealed and discovered.

Some of the music really resonates with me.

Here's some music and info:

consequently, you may fail to understand us.
we apologise for the effects of such misunderstanding.

common purpose.

Well played!

To be fair, my gut reaction is BS as well, but I try not be as dismissive. The Colundi community doesn't really help though, being so woo woo.

If it's full of woo, then it most probably is.

If it looks like an elephant...

Sounds and reads like audiophile bullshit to me, and I'm not averse to the occult.

“Instead of dividing the keyboard into octaves with semitones, we have chosen specific frequencies to work around... The scale is 128 resonant frequencies chosen via experimentation and philosophy, each relating to a specific human bio-resonance, or psychology, traditional mysticism or belief, physics, astronomy, maths, chemistry.”


Yep. Bullshit.
Might as well sit inside a pyramid with specific crystals when making your music as well whilst you are at it.

pretty much grew up on rephlex and all that skam stuff. Liked the secrecy and stories that came along with it, but it's over. Really wish they would drop this obscure talk crap. Aleksi makes great music. It's enough. drop the gimmick.
